    I have one of these old carts for the gba sitting around and was wondering if anyone has heard of modding one of these to work in an original game boy (pocket\light). I need a cart for my game boy light, and would like to possibly flash different software on this or something. I'm aware I would need to mod the case to fit down in there but that won't be a problem. If anyone has heard of a project doing that or could point me in the right direction would be great. I've exhausted my google searches and research and had no luck. Thanks :)

    No chance. You will need a GB/GBC flash cart, or just use an emulator with that supercard on a GBA/DS -- the supercard's GBA capabilities are not great but it can at least run emulators.

    That said there are a few GB/GBC flash carts of some merit around these days. http://gbatemp.net/review/everdrive-gb.141/ is probably the most notable but there are others, also a few people still have some of the more vintage ones and you can make one yourself if you really want -- http://reinerziegler.de/readplus.htm#Home made carts

    Thanks for the reply, I figured it wouldn't work but would ask since I couldn't find the exact info I needed. Looks like I'll have to wait for that Everdrive to be in stock over at Stoneagegamer which seems to be the cheapest I can find it. I might try my hand at that mod, but would probably need a better soldering iron than I have now. Thanks again for your help.

    You could buy a GB Bridge adapter but tracking it down will be hard that should allow you to use your flash cart of course you will need to mod it in order for the sd to fit
